    Any 'true' KoW armies started yet?

    Apart from Undead, Dwarves, Elves, and O&G, which we already have in large amounts, I'm seriously looking at a Forces of Nature army. I've got several Lizardman models as a starting point, so the ideas process is fermenting nicely.

    These were taken at Sussex Bonfire events this year. The Bonfire/firework/drinking season in Sussex starts the first week of September and goes through every weekend until early December, the highlight being at Lewes on November 5th. The reenactments occur all over the country and europe at all...

    I n full kit, without weapons or shield, I'm carrying about 26 kilos. With the rest, maybe another 5-6. It shows after a long day! Which is partly why my doctor thought his blood pressure machine was crocked - he didn't think someone my age would be that fit!

    On the subject of speculation of history, what bugs me all the time is the 'stratification' of eras. New technologies took time to spread, and although some wealthy/ powerful individuals would have had the latest equipment and weaponry, it would be some years before that kind of expensive...

    It is a bit depressing. I try really hard to match my kit to museum pieces or to manuscript illuminations, but have been told off for " inaccuracy" by people wearing point shoes.( " errr , 200 years or so out!") It is very difficult to be 100% right , but it's not hard to make the effort. Combat...

    Stil, I hope you enjoy the game. I've been playing since they started, and it's been fun.

    Just a check, but I don't think wizards can cast onto themselves….No, I've just checked the book, they can't.

    Strange Martial Practices

    Something more recent, and much more light hearted. Earlier this summer, a handful of us were at a local fair in Lewes, just having a bit of fun and demonstrating what weapons did and how they were used. Some HEMA guys came along, did a demo of their fencing styles, and as the afternoon drew on...

    What Spells to bring (and healing your undead)

    It can indeed. But You need several spell-casters, as most can only use one spell per turn. I personally think this is far more appropriate - there is only limited time before someone else hits you, so get that spell off quick!

    Strange Martial Practices

    I've met a few HEMA guys, and I admire and respect them. They seem more involved in the technique of fighting than the drama, and as far as I've seen, they don't have experts breathing down their necks about having the "wrong type of stitching on their shoes". The guys I've seen were extremely...

    BoTN is an international Tournament system, have a look, but can be VERY expensive, so not for me! I haven't come across this high tech armour, so don't really feel I should comment. For a FPV , try looking up Wolin Viking Festival - doesn't give the feeling, but shows some idea. For a look at...
